Description Suggest change

The Smoker's Lounge -- easy to walk by, hard to forget

Climb a crux left leaning tips crack until it meets with the obvious steep corner.  Some helpful stemming and a nice back rest on that protruding block lead toward the imposing offwidth.  A long section of baggy 4s and tight 5s gradually ease into 6s before meeting with a ledge and getting all up in there to clip the chains.  

I don't know why it's called the smoker's lounge, but I did seriously feel like I needed a cigarette after this one.

The OW is listed elsewhere as "secure 5.10+" and "5.11a" but I honestly felt like it was a pretty rugged 11+ for me.  Overhanging tight 5s?? I cannot get my knee in there...

Not exactly sure on the length for this one.  We scrambled up to a comfy belay on the ledge below the crack, and then rapped to the ground with an 80, I'm pretty sure a 70 would work too.  From the ledge the pitch is only 80-90 ft.
